Powering up: A revolution in robotics and artificial intelligence

We are now living through the early stages of a similarly rapid revolution in robotics and artificial intelligence — and the effect on society could be just as enormous.


Spotlight June 2022 – Teaching Robots

Can machines learn to walk and act in the real world in a similar way to how children do it? Starting from scratch, watching, copying, trying, failing, retrying? Learning to move is not as easy as learning to think – but the robots are getting closer.

Impact June 2022 – Digital Twin

A digital twin is the virtual version of something that happens or exists in physical space – whether a process, person, or object. The digital twin operates in the same way as their physical relative, and in real time, coded as a virtual model to carry out the same tasks or think in the same way. The concept of the digital twin has now moved out of industry and into everyday life with the rise of the Metaverse, as we start to see digital twins of ourselves likely to live, work, and play within it.

Spotlight Series: Digital Magic Air

With 5G connectivity the air around us becomes magic – and our individual digital sphere will surround us continuously. And 5G even has the potential to be more than a data playground for the global elites. With a little help from space technology it can bridge the digital divide and create a level online playing field for humanity

Impact Report 2022: Robotics Revolution

FII Institute publishes its fifth impact report as we enter a golden age for innovation in robotics. In the mid- 20th century, many scientists and writers envisioned the 2020s as full of highly intelligent robots of all shapes and sizes. While this might not have happened quite as imagined, things are now changing fast.
